Next, I'm meeting with the awesome folks behind Carsick Designs, Brian and Monica, to discuss making a custom set of bags for the Mundo. My experience with the Yuba designed bags has been less than positive. I'm on my second set of Baguette bags because my original ones fell apart. I will admit that I've never had any problem getting them warrantied but it's been frustrating to replace like with like. Even though the Baguettes were designed to fit with the Peanut Shell, I haven't had much luck getting them to stay attached properly without getting in the way of everyone's feet (and there are lots of feet to get in the way!). I have a Go-Getter from when I was able to fit one behind the Peanut Shell but since the PS has been moved to the rear position, it has been useless (and it was also replaced due to tearing at the bottom). All the bags are virtually brand-new as I have been reluctant to use them. My opinion is that the bags are too fancy and the quality is lacking. The areas that need to be focused on are the buckles and hangers, instead they put money into making them insulated and included a laptop sleeve (which I have never and would never use). I emailed Yuba with my thoughts but never heard back.
I'm looking forward to getting some Freeloader-esq bags ala Stacy and Sara. It's a simple U-shaped bag with an open top that allows you to throw anything inside and cinch them down. Going with Carsick Designs means I get to choose the color and add extra little pockets as needed and I'm supporting an awesome local business that's known for it's quality and attention to detail. Seriously, check out their gorgeous bags!
